The foot has a special place in musculoskeletal diagnosis due to its complex anatomy and because many similar symptoms can have different causes, each requiring a different approach to treatment. The evaluation of foot disorders and diseases requires close clinicalradiological correlation and communication with foot experts. Foot disorders and injuries increase with age, due in part to the rising popularity of recreational sports in all age groups. Diagnostic Imaging of the Foot and Ankle will help you train your eye to recognize disorders and diseases of the foot and ankle, including those that are often misdiagnosed or overlooked.
